If you are growing a bit jaded with open-air museums in Norway, note that this is one of the largest and best, lying 4km (2 1/2 miles) east of town on E18. From all over the Setesdalen region, nearly 50 antique farm and town dwellings were moved to this site. Some are furnished with provincial pieces, illustrating life as it was lived in the 18th and 19th centuries. Traditional costumes of the region are also displayed, along with other artifacts from the past. Folk dancing is staged Wednesday at 6pm from mid-June to mid-August. The major building houses thematic exhibitions, devoted to 18th- and 19th-century Norwegian life, once a year.
